Choices

Reading Time: 1 minute

You can view or print this picture of the story choices flowchart:

Use the flowchart to generate multiple outcomes at each turning point in your story. Check that your characters are making decisions which move the story onward. I have found this flowchart to be a good guard against passive main characters who simply react to external events. The format forces them to choose one path or another.

The link below allows you to download the chart for editing and adding your own stories to.

Character

Reading Time: 1 minute

Use this activity to generate characters to use when writing for other topics.

Paste your characters into the Characters page of your Jigsaw. You can re-use a character in many activities, or create fresh people for each topic. You may find that one character interests you more than the rest, and build a whole world around him or her. Or you might find yourself populating a town or landscape with a multitude of different people.

There are many online resources for creating characters – this activity is just a quick-start method.
